An extended warranty is a prolonged warranted offered on a number of products.
What is a Warranty?
Warranties exist on a number of products including electronic items such as fridges and microwaves, automobiles and even homes. A warranty is a statement by the seller or manufacturer of a product that it will perform in the manner specified. This is similar to an insurance policy in that it financially protects you against the risk that the product could break, require repair or a replacement altogether. For example, when you own a car, it is very likely that at some point you will have car problems. However, if you purchase an extended warranty, you will be protected from the potentially high cost of repairing your car.
How long does a Warranty last?
Typically, most warranties last between 1 and 3 years, after which time you must pay for repair or replacement out of your own pocket. In other words, the manufacturer will no longer cover the financial costs. It is important that you take the time to find the warranty that suits you and the product you want.
What does a Warranty cover?
Bear in mind not all warranties are equal. They may be limited to a term and they may have limitations that apply including misuse of the product, commercial use and parts that wear out. Warranties may also cover only certain things. In some cases warranties will require that you advance some money for repairs.
What is an Extended Warranty?
There are many companies that sell extended warranties. A standard warranty, set by the seller or manufacturer, carries a set time period which expires. An extended warranty is additional option which you can get from an independent warranty provider that offers an extension period for your warranty. By taking out an extended warranty you are taking a precaution against the risk of damage giving you the peace of mind that should something go wrong you are financially protected.

The difference between a warranty and an extended warranty
A warranty is the initial warranty that a manufacturer provides you with when you buy a product or service. This will come with a set time period after which it will expire. An extended warranty is an optional warranty that you can obtain from an independent warranty provider. This will not be the manufacturer and will be in addition to the manufacturers’ warranty. This extended warranty will provide an extended period of cover for your warranty. If you are in any doubt then you should seek independent advice.
